The Michigan State Spartans defense was up to the task all night against the Stanford Cardinal and had this great stop on 4th and 1 to clinch their first Rose Bowl win in 26 years. Maybe David Shaw should have watched some game film to see how great this defense really is. Oh and the player making the leaping tackle? Kyler Elsworth, Max Bullough’s backup/replacement because of Bullough’s suspension. MSU didn’t miss Bullough much though, Elsworth was named the Rose Bowl Defensive MVP.
